Sita creates new division dedicated to energy

Sita UK has created a new division called Sita Energy Solutions, which is dedicated to energy projects. It will be led by former head of Sita Power Tim Otley.

Sita Energy Solutions aims to provide a new approach to the energy recovery arm of the business, and covers Sita’s energy recovery operations, power production, landfill gas operations and energy- related technologies.

The restructure has brought together Sita’s landfill gas division, which was previously led by Sita Power, and its energy-from-waste division.

Former general manager for the north west Gary Mayson has been appointed general manager for Sita Energy Solutions. He said: “As much as 17% of Britain’s electricity needs could be met by recovering energy and heat from waste and the methane produced from landfill sites. As our industry moves towards maximising value from the waste stream, we need to focus more on the energy which can be recovered from waste and in giving waste a ‘second life’.”

The news comes as the energy division announced that it has signed a landmark 10-year contract with Corus UK to generate gas at Corus’ New Crosby Warren landfill site Using the gas, Sita will be able to deliver up to 1.4MW of electricity direct to the nearby Scunthorpe Steel electrical distribution network.

Regulator Ofgem has given the project preliminary accreditation under the renewable obligation scheme.
